the foundation for crazyness

There are two different games I am contemplating designing.
The first one will be created on a computer, and will be played over the over the internet. I will collaborate with Calvin on this project.
-It would be amazing to be able to design, and create a massively multiplayer on line game, but I don't think it is practical, so it seems like the game will be solo player
-The game will be played on a computer, but the actual game will take place in real life locations such as SFAI, and we will hopefully also be able to integrate people, who may not be aware of it, into the game.
-The game will be a persistent type game, with a slow paced, methodical build up, I envision something like the adventure game that ender play's in the book “Enders game.”
The other game I would like to design is a social, community based game
-The game will be best played with a small, to medium sized group of friends maybe 5-15 people
-I don't want the game to be site specific, I like the idea of being able to play it anywhere you can sit in a circle. However, it would still be possible to integrate any environment into the game
-The game will not have a specific time limit, but hopefully will be designed to last roughly twenty minutes, or the player decide to end it.

Can you clarify what you mean by: "The game will be played on a computer, but the actual game will take place in real life locations such as SFAI"?
Also, if you're thinking of collaborating for a final game project, we should talk-- the assignent is designed to be individual, so we would need to discuss how to handle things if you want to work with someone on it. I'm not sure it's possible to change the project to be collaborative, but we can talk.
